"I was so excited to find your courses dealing with pet loss. I have 2 dogs that are dying of cancer and with the vets I have here in Vermont there is no group that we are aware of that exist for us to get support. I am hoping with what I am going through and the courses I will be able to start a support group to help myself and others in this time..."

Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.
-Thornton Wilder

Grieve not nor speak of me with tears, twas heaven here with you.
-Isla Paschal Richardson

Dog. A kind of additional or subsidiary Deity designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world’s worship.
-Ambrose Bierce

That one true heart was left behind!
What feeling do we ever find
To equal among human kind
A dog's fidelity!
-Thomas Hardy

Old dog Tray's ever faithful;
Grief can not drive him away;
He is gentle, he is kind—
I shall never, never find
A better friend than old dog Tray!
-Stephen Collins Foster

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
-Samuel Butler

A home without a cat — and a well fed, well petted and properly revered cat — may be a home, perhaps, but how can it prove title?
-Mark Twain

When I play with my cat, who knows but that she regards me more as a plaything that I do her?
-Michel de Montaigne

I’ve always thought a hotel ought to offer optional small animals.... I mean a cat to sleep on your bed at night, or a dog of some kind to act pleased when you come in. You ever notice how a hotel room feels so lifeless?
-Anne Tyler

For he purrs in thankfulness, when God tell him he’s a good Cat. For he is an instrument for the children to learn benevolence upon.
-Christopher Smart

No matter how much cats fight, there always seems to be plenty of kittens.
-Abraham Lincoln

Of all God’s creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
-Mark Twain

I believe all animals were created by God to help keep man alive.
-Iwao Fujita

Animals are ever so psychic. There are some people who just can’t come in here.... The cats particularly. They seem to know. You can fool everybody, but landy M deary-me, you can’t fool a cat. They seem to know who’s not right, if you know what I mean.
-Dewitt Bodeen

All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.
-Samuel Butler

In their sympathies, children feel nearer animals than adults. They frolic with animals, caress them, share with them feelings neither has words for. Have they ever stroked any adult with the love they bestow on a cat? Hugged any grownup with the ecstasy they feel when clasping a puppy?
-Jessamyn West

Nothing to be done really about animals. Anything you do looks foolish. The answer isn’t in us. It’s almost as if we’re put here on earth to show how silly they aren’t.
-Russell Hoban

There is no death. Only a change of worlds.
- Chief Seattle

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
- Anatole France

When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy-hearted into which our grief has given us entrance. And inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy and their understanding.
- Helen Keller

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of its master.
- Ben Hur Lampman
